NFL Reaches Deal With Time Warner Cable


It has been a long road filled with negotiations but Time Warner Cable and the National Football League will broadcast the NFL Network and RedZone, its sister channel.

The cable company has as many as 12 million subscribers with many of them in New York and Los Angeles. They were the final major cable network to offer these channels are part of their package. It was the cost for the channel, which will be $1 per subscription, which prevented a sooner agreement.

The deal specifies that the NFL Network will listed on a popular Time Warner Cable programming package while RedZone, a Sunday-only channel broadcasting live action from games when a team is about to score, will be offered on a specialty tier subscription for an additional charge.

The NFL Network hit the television airwaves in 2003. The partnership with Time Warner Cable will make the channel available in over 70 million homes throughout the United States.

The NFL will host eight additional regular season games where as it had carried just five in the past. The NFL Network can be seen on Thursday nights. An official contract is not in place between the NFL and the network and could be an indicator that the eight additional games granted could be taken and sold to another network at some point.

"For the foreseeable future we'll have 13 games,' said an NFL spokesman.
